Frank Warren calms Fury v Usyk fears

Frank Warren calms Fury v Usyk fears

Frank Warren has eased fears that Tyson Fury and Oleksandr Usyk's fight could fall through.

The Gypsy King's promoter is confident that the heavyweight unification bout will take place as planned at Wembley Stadium on April 29 and rubbished claims that Fury is trying to avoid the clash.

Speaking on talkSPORT, Warren said: "Both boxers have agreed to a split and it’ll be on. It’s just a matter of contracts but they’re not going to be a problem. I know we’ll get this on. From Tyson’s perspective he’s just putting it out there and putting it on the table, asking why he [Usyk] wants a rematch.

"If he was going to avoid the fight he’d just say, ‘I’m the WBC champion, you get on with your lives, I’ll get on with mine.’ To say that Tyson would avoid any fight; this is the guy that went to Germany to fight Wladimir Klitschko, who at his time was the best heavyweight of his generation, had no problem going over there and actually won the fight. This is the guy that went off to the United States not once but three times to fight the hardest puncher in the heavyweight division.

"Please, the one thing about Tyson is that he’s got balls… just massive balls. There’s no problem with him doing the fight."

Warren explained that Fury is dedicated to the sport of boxing and will have no issue with training to be ready to fight Usyk next month.

He said: "Secondly, he trains religiously every day… he’s as fit as a butcher’s dog. You’ve only got to look at him, see recent photos of him and you can see how fit he is. He’s ready to go."
